Didn’t You Used to be a Pterodactyl?

I think I understand a bit now why older people say that the modern world confuses them. I mean, since I was a little girl the world has changed to much. Not only have personal computers spread everywhere, but countries have disappeared, reappeared, and split off into in endless numbers whose names I can never remember.

And dinosaurs! There are no more brontosaurus; they were an archeological accident. And dd you know that some of them have had their names changed?! The beloved pterodactyl is now called a pteranodon.

Pteranodon, designed by PlanetJune

The pattern is PlanetJune’s Pteranodon (available as a single pattern, or with two other dinosaurs.) The yarn is Bernat Satin in colour Fern.

After finishing up this guy (who was actually pretty easy), I realized what my favourite thing about PlanetJune patterns is: my finished product always looks like her models. That isn’t something you can say about every pattern designer, especially toy designers.

Oh, one last dino thing: when I was a wee girl, I used to think an allosaurus was a t-rex’s wife. 😉
